Claiborne (foot) practiced without limitations Thursday and is in line to play Sunday against the Panthers.
Claiborne took full advantage of the bye week and will return to his starting cornerback role. The sixth-year pro has 31 tackles, six pass breakups and one interception through nine games. He has a high ceiling, and he may have more opportunities to shine against a Panthers offense that is fond of airing it out.
Claiborne hurt his foot Sunday against the Buccaneers and is doubtful to return, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Claiborne is on pace for his best season yet, with 30 tackles (23 solo) six pass breakups and one interception so far. Luckily, the Jets have a bye week approaching, so Claiborne will have two weeks to recover before he's called upon again.
Claiborne is active for Sunday's tilt against Tampa Bay.
Claiborne was unable to suit up in Week 9 against the Bills due to the quick turnaround for the Thursday night matchup, but with an additional 10 days to recover, he wont be forced to miss additional game action. Look for Claiborne to reclaim his starting role at cornerback opposite Buster Skrine.
Claiborne (foot) participated in Friday's practice but is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Coach Todd Bowls said that Claiborne "did a lot more" in practice Friday than he did Thursday, so it looks like he is trending in the right direction for Sunday's game. Expect him to ultimately be a game-time decision this weekend.
Claiborne (foot) has been ruled inactive for Thursday's matchup with the Bills.
Claiborne was held out of practice all week after injuring his foot Sunday against the Falcons. While the injury is not severe, the Jets clearly felt no need to rush Claiborne back into action on a short week, so it will be up to Rashard Robinson and Juston Burris to fill in at cornerback Thursday night.
